    My name is Cortney Ludmer and I am so thrilled about my fifth year teaching fourth grade here at Brookside Elementary School. I graduated from Rutgers University with my Master's in Elementary Education K-6, as well as my Teacher of Students with Disabilities license K-12. I love watching my students grow into kind, driven learners, and helping them achieve their goals. In my spare time, you can find me spending time with family and friends, going to concerts to enjoy live music, or reading a book at the beach. Ms. Cruz and I feel so grateful to be your fourth grade teachers!

    Hello Parents and Students! My name is Marisol Cruz. I’m looking forward to entering my 13th year as a Special Education teacher at Brookside and my second year working with Ms. Ludmer. I’ve taught grades 3-5 but 4th grade is my favorite to teach. You are so lucky to have two cool teachers, double the fun! Get ready to learn new things, meet new classmates and have a blast! See you all very soon :)
